I was injured in a Wisconsin ATV accident. If another ATV driver caused my crash, can I file a lawsuit against him like I would for a motorcycle wreck?

I can’t say that you definitely have a case without knowing all the details; however, the answer is probably “yes.”

You have the right to seek damages through a Wisconsin personal injury claim when another person’s recklessness causes you to be injured in an ATV accident. This is because, while the designs of ATVs and cars are very different, ATV accidents and car accidents occur for some of the same reasons:

  • Driver error
  • Driver recklessness
  • Driver impairment
  • Poor driving conditions
  • Mechanical failure
  • Defective design

The best way to determine if you have a case is to contact a Milwaukee accident attorney who has experience in ATV accident claims. The attorney will be able to determine who is at fault for your accident and whether you have a motor vehicle accident case or a product liability claim. He’ll place a value on your accident claim and help you get the compensation you are entitled to.

You can learn more about ATV crashes in our article, “Five Steps to Take After a Wisconsin ATV Accident.”

There is a statute of limitations for Wisconsin ATV accident claims. If you think that someone else caused your ATV accident, we recommend that you contact a Milwaukee personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
